Here’s what you should know…
While Mercy is not an ambassador for the luxury champagne brand,Moët & Chandon proudly supported her party with bottles of luxury champagne.
According to a Moët official, Moët & Chandon is currently not signing any new ambassadors and they generally allow people to take photos in their offices.
This wasn’t an exception. The source by BN, stated that Moët & Chandon is happy for Mercy for her success so far and that they wish her well. She is however not an ambassador for Moët & Chandon.
To be fair, Mercy never explicitly stated that she is an ambassador for the global brand. According to her caption, she’s just happy to be a part of the family.
